The Dell Mini 9 is a pretty good netbook, but it seems that the upcoming Dell Mini 10 HD will be so much better, especially with the inclusion of the 720p high-definition display.
The Dell Mini 10 HD netbook was officially announced at the Consumer Electronics Show last month, but Dell wasn’t all that forthcoming with all of the details. We have now come across some of the leaked specs and while they are not at all confirmed, they do sound well within the realm of reason.
According to this leaked presentation slide, the base model of the Dell Mini 10 will only have a 16:9 WSVGA (1024×576) display. The 720p HD display (1366×768) will come as an option, as will the integrated TV tuner. With both screens, you can expect an “edge-to-edge display” and a “super thin design” at just 21mm of total thickness.
Checking out the rest of the spec sheet, we find internal Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, optional internal GPS, Intel Atom Silverthorne processor (1.3GHz/1.6GHz), 120GB/160GB hard drive, 1GB-2GB RAM, 1.3 megapixel camera, a 3-cell or 6-cell battery, and Linux or Windows XP. There’s also an option for a “DVD slice,” possibly referring to a slot-loading DVD drive?
